back there is a storm fence put up. as i understand it, when hurricane irene hit, it came about that far, maybe a little further out. and with a lot of people at first were hesitant to evacuate because they said irene wasn't that bad. most of the damage of flooding was inland and not here on the coast. as you can see, the coast is just washed away. it's completely gone. as i said, it extends perhaps about 100 yards outs in na direction. the same situation from the north and cape may in the south, down near at alantic city towards the tip of new jersey and the garden state parkway the main highway into that area, which bisects of entire state, has been closed off because they don't want people to go back into that area. it's completely vevacuated, and right now somewhere from here to there is where the storm is expected to hit. we're going to take cover when we have to. we're in a position that's somewhat prekd prekted. it's enough protected we feel safe enough. again, things are deteriorating very quickly by the hour. >> all right. >> reporter: back to you guys. >> thank you, ro

officials it could be weeks, not days, before full power is restored to everyone. >> during hurricane irene restoration took eight days. for hurricane sandy the full restoration may, in fact, take longer. >> to give you a sense of the impact, check out this comparison of what the normal manhattan skyline liked light lack night. how to do it tom cune, the president of the institute. one of the most jarring images is video that made the rounds online about power stations at 14th streit and fdr highway exploding and lighting up the sky in this explosion. all of the lights around it going out. i like at that. i used to live icouple of blocks from there. i know power is still out in my neighborhood. i say that means we're kind of screws for a long time here. is that what that picture suggests to you? >> well, the picture might suggest that. that particular incident wasn't as serious as some of the other situations they have in lower manhattan, which is that water has gotten into the underground equipment. you have to clean out the equipment and get the water out. it's a very, very difficult task
